734 SE 6th Ave., 503-303-8220, voiceboxkaraoke.com.

For those who love the thrill of karaoke but hate singing in front of strangers (or just hate hearing strangers butcher Queen and Toto), Voicebox is your place. The bar rents out soundproof private karaoke rooms to small-to-large groups by the hour and provides full bar and dinner service, so you can order the next round of cocktails and hummus without missing your friend's rendition of "Sweet Child of Mine."
